Waffles have always intrigued me, but given that the majority are loaded with sugar and butter I’ve never been a big fan.. until now! Waffles can actually make the perfect healthy breakfast, snack or dessert (when made in the right way) and I couldn’t wait to share this super healthy waffle recipe with you.
This recipe is low calorie, low GI, high in fibre and protein and so PERFECT for any time of day (I’ve also blogged a chocolate protein waffle recipe too!).
There are lots of waffle makers on sale but I got mine from Amazon. There are some cheaper as well as more expensive brands, however I really have been impressed with mine.. it heats up quickly, makes 2 square waffles at a time, is easy to use and clean and it looks good too!
- 1 medium-large banana, mashed
- 2 whole eggs
- 4 egg whites
- 50g oat flour*
- 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- Optional: 1-2 tsp vanilla, cinnamon, ginger or stevia
- Toppings: Yoghurt, blueberries, honey (anything you want!)
- + 1 calorie spray oil
*To make oat flour simply blend oats in your blender! To make this recipe gluten free use gluten free oats.
Whisk together the banana, eggs, egg whites, oat flour and baking powder in a bowl (plus any extras - see below for my apple pie version!)
Lightly spritz your waffle maker with 1 calorie spray oil (to prevent the waffles from sticking)
Pour 1/3 of the mixture (if your waffle maker has room for 2 - or use 1/6 of the mixture for 1 waffle) into the waffle maker, close & cook for 5-6 minutes (the cooking time will reduce as the waffle maker gets hotter)
Serve your waffles with yoghurt, fresh fruit & honey (my choice or see below for my apple pie version!) - or anything that you fancy!
P.S To make an apple pie version simply add 1 tsp cinnamon. 1/2 tsp ginger, a dash of nutmeg & 2 tsp xylitol (a healthier alternative to sugar which is also kind to teeth – I use Total Sweet) to the mixture & top with 1/2 apple microwaved for 1 minute, cinnamon, xylitol & some cheeky Wheyhey ice-cream (optional but amazing!!!) or yoghurt!
